After a wonderful breakfast [part 1, part 2] (not exactly at Tiffany’s but at Brooklyn Diner), a walk down Times Square was the prefect remedy to help digest the meal. Seriously, after such a huge meal… a walk (the longer the better) is very much necessary, VERY MUCH necessary.
Times Square kinda reminds me of Seoul (South Korea) with a mix of Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia). In a good way of course.
Boutiques => Seoul, South Korea
Streets => Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
I liked my trip to Seoul, and Kuala Lumpur is somewhat my favourite part of Malaysia. So yeah, it’s all good.
Anyway, while walking down Times Square we passed by one of the T-Mobile outlets.
Mobile phones here are dirt cheap! A phone together with a basic prepaid line cost less than USD70. They even have customised plans for bloggers, or so says the brochures.
I got myself a plan with 500 minutes talk-time, unlimited text and unlimited data (a more expensive prepaid plan that works on my BlackBerry)! All for the price of USD72, without contract. It’s the unlimited data that sealed the deal really.
Getting the line was like being reconnected to the world again. I could tweet on the go and BBM my friends! I literally jumped for joy. Even the sales guy said “you’re just happy to BBM eh.” I’m guessing my giggling, the sparkle in my eyes and the jumping kinda gave me away.
I like Sesame Street. Cookie Monster happens to be one of my favourite characters. The M&M on the other hand… I don’t know.
You got it! We have similar bags!
